Relumed and aftermarket hands, probably aftermarket insert. Dial itself looks genuine

Thanks! I had doubts about the dial itself.. Hands are probably AM, as well as bezel. Skx bezel for sure. This is from 1982 .. Spanish / English day / date wheel.

Skx bezel wouldn't work on a 6309-729x. But if you mean insert then possibly but I can't see the lume pip. Not 100% on the relume but it doesn't look oem to me.

Hey Guy, Do you think the lume is too domed ? Shadows etc... Usually it is flat with a seemingly corner to the edges of the lume like a 7548 marker and I might add a bit thinner than a 7548. The rest is fake

Agreed David that's what made me think it's a relume.

How can you tell it has AM hands?

Because they don't look the same as 6309-7290 hands. Cheap looking, and the giveaway is the seconds hand.

OK I'm wrong they're genuine and correct.

I believe you (Guy) are correct in your earlier conclusion. They are AM / not correct to this particular model. Sweeping hand sticks out like a candy salesman at a dental convention. Dial is and appears genuine, but markers are perplexing to say the least. They appear domed. Re-lumed, most likely, but I'm told it is genuine by someone at IWW. Matter a fact I have one example that is from 1984' it was an estate find. Case back has never been opened.. My skilled hands slipped and caused a mark...while attempting that maneuver. Still gutted about that slippage.

From my limited experience, I see the metal framing the lume on the hands is a bit too high compared to the original.
